Arrington did play in Arizona though and theyre terrible at running the ball. Maybe he has upside, but I hope Hillis stays the Starter.

They're not totally scrubs. Both have value and likely came quite cheap.

I figured Correll Buckhalter would be a target, but the JJ signing caught me off guard.

Well the back field is now set, minus a draft pick, now onto CB,DL,LB,S,WR...

I assume arrington will be looked at as a 3rd down guy and buckhalter would be used to complement hillis? Assuming they didnt pay much for either of em, im fine with it.

Can never have enough depth at RB. Especially cheap depth. Just ask the Broncos a la 2008

Correll Buckhalter may prove to be a valuable backup.

I will wait for the numbers. Arrington can be our Kick off guy so we don't have to put Eddie Royal back there. Buckhalter is a 3rd down back, why not just keep Alridge?

They probably didn't cost squat, and they both are shifty runners who can catch the ball out of the backfield. Why anyone would complain about these signings is beyond me.

I really like the JJ Arrington pickup. The guy is underrated. He had a great career at Cal but never seemed to fit in with Arizona. I think he'll probably make the roster over Buckhalter. I've never been a fan of his, even less so with two reconstructed ACL's.

I hope they get added on Madden. I only use Peyton Hillis to run the ball out of the FB position atm rofl.

New Denver head coach Josh McDaniels must have thought running back was his team's most pressing free-agent need.


The Broncos have acquired two of them by agreeing to multiyear contracts with Correll Buckhalter (Philadelphia) and J.J. Arrington (Arizona) at the midnight opening of the signing period, FOXSports.com has learned. The deals will become official when both pass physical exams.

Buckhalter can be considered a frontrunner for a starting spot, while Arrington is likely to fill a niche as a third-down specialist and kickoff returner.

A backup behind Brian Westbrook for most of his eight seasons in Philadelphia, the 30-year-old Buckhalter has battled back from knee injuries that forced him to miss the 2002, 2004 and 2005 campaigns. Buckhalter started two games in 2008 and finished the season with 369 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 76 attempts. He also is an effective receiver coming out of the backfield.

Arrington never fulfilled the expectations that came with being Arizona's second-round draft pick in 2005. But he did start three games for the 2008 Cardinals team that reached Super Bowl XLIII. Arrington tallied 432 combined yards from scrimmage (rushing and receiving) and averaged 25.6 yards on kickoff returns with one touchdown.

Denver finished last season with seven running backs on injured reserve
